The transformations of the legal sources in Latinamerica and Spain

Traditionally, the latinamerican legal systems are part of the civil law system. Nontheless, the 21st century has brought strong transformations regarding the sources of law. Even though the legislative power is still the principal constitution developing authority, it is posible to see the judges, as well as the Public Administration playing a prominent role in the rule making process. Recently the American Convention of Human Rights and the jurisprudence of the Interamerican Court of Human Rights have come to take a very important place in the Latinamerican legal systems with a heavy load of transformation of its structure and dynamics. The goal of the Panel is to address the discussion of the changes regarding precedents, administrative regulations and the American Convention of Human Rights and the jurisprudence of the Interamerican Court of Human Rights in the Latinamerican legal systems.
